Historian Shelby Foote tells of a soldier who was wounded at the battle of Shiloh during the American Civil War and was ordered to go to the rear. The fighting was fierce and within minutes he returned to his commanding officer. “Captain, give me a gun!” he shouted. “This fight ain’t got no rear!”

Have you ever felt like that soldier? He felt there was no safe place, no place to retreat or hide. Sometimes life throws one attack and disappointment after another at us. That’s the time to press in toward God. Satan’s attacks can discourage us. The world can be as relentless. But God will never let us fall without helping us back up again. Draw close to Jesus, because this fight ain’t got no rear.

Amen!! This is so true. It takes time but God is continually teaching us and bringing us to a new level, making us better servants and the learning never stops. Praise God for the bad times, when we get through them with Christ we come out on the other side much better and stronger and more able to help others!!
